New Brand


Alrighty is a new speciality coffee company from Berlin whose aim it is to open people’s eyes to the wrongs that are currently done in the name of selling coffee and helping them to see how things can be done fairly and justly.

For the team at Alrighty this means, addressing the gender gap, the "disappearance" of African producers, or promoting the long overdue generational transition on farms.
